Internet Explorer hit by security flaw

  • About 56 percent of those who still use Internet Explorer may face a major security flaw that would leave them open to "remote code execution vulnerability," Recode said. 

    According to Microsoft, users are vulnerable to the attack if they click on a link that leads them to a suspicious website. The bug reportedly affects all versions of the Explorer. 

    Despite the fact that the company stopped supporting Windows XP users earlier this month, it's not clear if it will make an exception this time. "XP users are not safe anymore and this is the first vulnerability that will be not patched for their system," a researcher said.
